The totem pole at Urban Totem in the 1900 block of Central Street is missing and presumed stolen. An employee at Urban Totem called the RoundTable mid-afternoon on Friday to report that the pole – a 16-foot-high icon of the store for years – had disappeared. It was chained down, she said, and she was surprised that anyone would have or could have taken it.
“When we called the police, they said, ‘We know that totem pole.’” Anyone who sees the pole should call the police, 847-866-5000 (non-emergency).
